Default 81 Dodge Crew Cab Cummins project

So heres the story....I have a '81 Dodge Crew Cab 4x4 318 4spd with dana 60's front and rear with 4;10s... its an ol ARMY truck with very low miles and RUST FREE,someone had painted it blue in the past..... I wanted to swap in a '92 Cummins with 5spd, AC,and CC.

I have purchased a BASKETCASE of a '92 Dodge diesel 4x4 regular cab,5spd, SRW for the donor ...so it was time to get started on this swap....so stay tuned for this long road ahead of me to get all this swapped over...

Here are pics of both trucks just the way I got them...







the 92 Diesel donor truck!!

You should mock up the clutch pedal assembly, wiper motor, and steering column before you paint. They all require a small amount of modification.

Default nice

I've never been a huge fan of older dodges but that is gonna be nice. I've got a 93 dually I was thinkin about the older quad cab conversion, but I like the 8ft box and don't have time for that much work! PS-do the frames on those older trucks need to be modified or are they basically the same frame till 93. Keep up the good work
